LibriVox recording of The Orange-Yellow Diamond by J. S. Fletcher. (Dramatic reading)
A novelist finds himself struggling to make ends meet. In his effort to raise a bit of money to get him by, he finds himself in the middle of a mystery. Murder, theft, and love, all the ingredients for a wonderful reading. Please note: There is some stereotyping of ethnic groups however it is presented without malice but rather a sign of the times. (Summary by Linette Geisel)

Gratitude To Librivox Volunteers
As an Army Combat vet, I have often turned to Librivox and found more serenity here than in any other of my attempts to forget the truth of the statement attributed to Robert E Lee at the battle of Fredericksburg that " it is well that war is so terrible less we should grow too fond of it."
But this brings me to the point I want to make about the generosity, kindness and love I feel ALL Librivox volunteers give so freely and generously to all who listen. I have recommended it to some of my "brother and sister" vets whom I know it will help as well.
I do not like to point out anyone as a better reader of more gifted than another, but I have to give honorable mention to Mary Ann, Tricia G, asterix, Elizabeth Klett, Anna Simon, and I am doing so for the many and various readings they have given to us so generously and profusely. Anyone, however, who volunteers should be thanked before rating the book.
The book was entertaining and I would recommend it to those who listen to the "news" or should I say "opinions" and go away feeling worried or sad about what we see around us now. Librivox volunteers provide us with a generous antidote to that "news" or those "opinions", or, it does so to me. May God bless Librivox vounteers who are showing there love for their fellow man and woman or child by giving us this antidote absolutely free...
